A Hand With Many Fingers is a first-person investigative thriller. While searching through a dusty CIA archive you uncover a real Cold War conspiracy. Every document you find has new leads to research. But the archive might not be as empty as you think…  

  • Slowly unravel a thrilling historical conspiracy
  • Discover new clues through careful archival research
  • Assemble your theories using corkboard and twine
  • Experience a story of creeping paranoia



The archive is sorted by name, date, and location. Finding new clues requires all three pieces of info (e.g. Frank Nugan, 1980, Australia). Every detail you need to know is hidden somewhere in the archive. But you’ll only find them if you know who was involved, when it happened, and where it took place.  Average playtime for the game is around 1-2 hours.

To make this game as accessible as possible, it's available for two different prices. If you can afford it, please pay the full price of $10 $5. If not, please pay what you can down to a minimum of $1.

"A thriller about a few hours in the life of an archival researcher is somehow one of the most compelling experiences I’ve had in a long time." - Unwinnable

"It’s a fantastic concept which delivers a very unique and authentic feeling take on investigative work." - Alpha Beta Gamer

"[This game] illustrates the quiet fervour of trying to understand something much bigger than yourself – a web of obscure moving parts and shady characters who have, to this day, never been convicted of a crime." - IndieGameWebsite

"If you like conspiracy thrillers, putting together your own red string link-board, figuring out plots using scant evidence, remembering the Nugan Hand fiasco, or are just a really big fan of the library sciences and the Dewey Decimal system, this is definitely a game worth checking out." - Errant Signal
